I've bought some of those programs. ;-) Of course if the function
isn't designed to operate as above then it would be poor practice,
akin to taking advantage of an exploit or bug/feature.

It's been a number of years since I wrote anything in C. And even
longer since I've done any vocational programming. Realistically I
guess C is sort of the Latin of modern programming languages. I
probably would be better off to have stuck with it. Then again,
programming is not my job.

Rightly so, and quite apparent in some parts of the manual. My
technique is to sit down a type.
